No, the factory head unit in the 2009 RAV4 had no USB support whatsoever. It wasn't until the 2012 model year that the RAV4 got this feature. There was an iPod adapter available, but not USB.Thanks Theo & nouse4aname
I forgot to ask very basic question. The default music player in RAV4 has USB as input?
Pls reply if someone knows.
This might work for you, it does Bluetooth phone, and USB music using steering wheel controls:Hi,
I have got Rav4 2009 . I want to Add USB port next to Traction, Seat heater switch, which is just in front of the cup holders.
Main aim is to play music from USB stick.
Please help in finding how to do it.
I bought a USB charger/input for the accessory slot too, but when driving in dark I found the blue LED lights to bright.
So I searched the net and found a version with amber LED lights, same as al the LED lights in the RAV4 dash. Perfect!
I found the blue one on Amazon (see this review) and AliExpress but not the amber one in the Linda Lin store (or anywhere else) so sent them a message.I bought the USB charger via "Linda Lin's auto accessory" at AliExpress: the item page is gone, but the seller told me he would make a new product page for the USB outlets coming week.
Be aware that you have to tell the seller at your order for what car brand, car type, outlet size, LED color, and version (USB/charge, or 2x charge) you want. The seller responds very quick.
You can mention my AliExpress order ID:73981699502259 then you will get the same as me, for a RAV4.3
The previous USB outlet I had was without the rubber dust flaps, because I find this version look better.
The new USB outlet with amber LED's which I received was the version with the rubber dust flaps, but no big deal. I could esaly exchange the plastic outlet fronts with the blue LED version.
Here is the reply I received 25 minutes later:bjmsam said:Do you sell USB dash plug for Toyota Rav4 (2009 v4.3) with 1x charge, 1x audio, amber / yellow color like AliExpress order ID:73981699502259?
Linda Lin said:could you tell us what size of your car?
the price is 14USD including shipping fee to USA.
I'd still like to find one that has two usb data pass throughs as my head unit has 2 usb inputs.
I will ask to Linda about amber led illumination, but, I've install a switch and only is illuminated in blue when it only is in use... It would be good to know the output current, if there is 1A or 2.1A option.Linda Lin Store on Ali Express sells the dual USB outlet in 1xPower/1xData, 2xPower, or 2xData. Also with amber LED illuminiation.
They are not visible on the site, but you can ask via a direct message. Just ask what you want and they assamble the oulet you like.
The standard outlet housing contains two USB pcb's slided in, and they can be removed, exchanged, etc. It's no rocket science.
I mean, I don't know if it's worth for me if I only take turn the blue light on when I'm using the charger...It's hard to give a usable answer on your question about the switch. Maybe a picture helps.
